Conversations with My Father - Pt. 6

Dad:  Here I brought you a chicken. 
Me:  Um, great, thanks.  Why?
Dad:  'Cause you like chicken. 
Me:  True... is it a live chicken?
Dad:  That is literally the dumbest question you've ever asked in your life. 
[-- ed:  if ONLY that were true.] Also, I brought you some trail mix.  I don't like it.  It has too many nuts. 
Me: ...?  It's trail mix, dad, it's mostly nuts.
Dad:  That's why I don't want it.  I mostly liked the M&M's. 
Me:  Then just buy a bag of M&M's.
Dad:  That's unhealthy. 
Me:  Then buy a bag of peanut M&M's and dump some raisins in the bag.
Dad:  I'm TOTALLY going to do that!  Brilliant.

Were it anyone else, it would be a dumb question. With your father it was perfectly reasonable.

I was actually wondering about the state of the chicken myself. So who's the dumb one NOW, Denny?
Wait. Crap.

THANK you! I didn't think it was even a remotely dumb question with him. You just NEVER know with Denny.

Also, I have NO idea why he keeps bringing me food. It's nice of him, but it's not like I don't go to the store twice a week.
